My father was an airman stationed at Hakata. I attended the elementary school for Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. Mom was a life guard at the beach. I have wonderful memories of Hakata and the surrounding area and hope to get back there someday. My brother was born at the base in Tokyo...not sure why they sent mom there. So glad that this site exists.

OOOOOOOOPS!!! We try very hard to make sure all of our info is up to date and accurate—but now and then we get fooled or miss something too. Sorry!!

Such is the case with this message board. Until a few years ago, this message board was cared for by others. That said, it takes time for anyone to keep it up to date. When new messages are received (now, at least) they are first read and screened, to be sure it’s not spam or not a proper message for this site, etc. You’d be surprised at the stuff people try to post anywhere/anytime they can on the internet—so we’re careful about proofing all messages before posting them. Sometimes, depending on our schedules, that takes a few days—and in the case of spam, or something improper—it never gets posted at all, and members and the public never see it.

Last week, while looking at something unrelated, we discovered that there were NUMEROUS messages from both members and guests, dating from between 2008 and 2012, that had NEVER been cleared for public viewing. That means, until now they were hidden away, waiting for authorization to be viewed publicly.

Since their original submittal, some of the members are no longer active, e-mails or messages may have evolved, etc., but we wanted to post them anyway, so that you could view them now—if you wanted to.

So….message numbers 40, 45, 60, 93, 106, 113, 129, 134, 150, 154, 180, 186, 192, 195, 226, 235, 242, 244, 254, 281, 295, 309, and 321 have all now been approved, and can be viewed by members and the public!!

We apologize for the mix up, but all of these messages should have been cleared well before we began overseeing this—but we also should have been more careful to check our history, to ensure we kept current!

So….without further delay….enjoy reading some additional hysterical historical 6918th stuff!!

Dave

I passed thru Brady onto my assignment at ashiya,Japan in June 1954. I found this web site recently and noted a blurb about a chuck redepenning. Name rings a bell. I am thinking Dhahran Airfield, Saudi Arabia in 1957 (Clothing Sales store).

To Mike Fenenbock, Michael G "Grover" Wilson's flight will be changed on the next roster up date.. We have contacted Grover and so did the 6994th. Grover has stated that at this time he he is not interested in either group. He did not release his personal information.

Paul--like Carol directed works--as does going to the Brady Theaters to view the Memorial Taps video there--always up to date with an exact count/scroll of names of our Fallen. See you in November!

I am looking forward to our final reunion this November. I have attended the last three and have enjoyed all of them. I can’t find the “Taps” list on this website. Could someone let me know where to go? Thanks
